Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeWife's uncle always said old Farmalls had a habit of sticking valves, so he always put a qt of motor oil in every tank of gas....80:1 mix.

Old Farmalls, e.g., F series, did not have pressure lubrication to the rocker arm shaft, but rather, oil cups on the rocker cover.

Inside the cover was an oil tray lined with a wick having extensions strategically located to drip oil onto the rocker arms.

Such Farmalls also had very weak valve springs.

If one did not fill the oil cups regularly as required and/or keep the wick (extensions) in good condition, valves would promptly stick.

I do know that on 2 of my 172 red tigers. after I had stuck valves, when I put back together, I went with walmart 10w30 synthetic oil and no more sticky.

it's this wonderfull gas we have I think. and worse in a humid environment like I'm in. the 2 make a bad combo

I had a valve sticking in my old jeep, it had a new long block with only 5k miles.

Old guy at Napa told me to try marvel mystery oil, 1/2 qt in oil and 1/2 qt in fuel tank.

All I know is that when I started the motor, the valve was sticking, in 30 seconds it stopped and I never heard it again.

MMO is worth its weight in gold to me.
